There are people who would vote for anyone but Trump. There are people who would vote for anyone but Clinton. Any idea about which group is larger?

Some would switch parties to avoid either.

I think you should've made this a poll as well.

I think there's more Clinton haters.

Probably pretty even along partisan lines.

Trump's negatives are higher than Clinton's, and more people polled have said they would never vote for Trump than Clinton.

Last week -- "On Morning Joe, Scarborough said "I am shocked by how many Republicans, that have always voted Republican, that have said they're going to vote for Hillary if it's Cruz or Trump running against Hillary. I'm talking Deep South, Southern Baptist. I asked people who I expect to say yes, Cruz, go "hell no. No. I will never vote for Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. I will vote for Hillary Clinton."

Although Scarborough included Trump in the mix, his focus was on Republicans who supposedly wouldn't vote for Cruz. Asked "why" by Willie Geist, Scarborough said "too harsh . . . and they think it's an act."

Hate is a pretty strong word. I would say I like Hillary the least. Learned many years ago she can't be trusted and nothing seems to have changed. Don't forget the dems went right over her and offered up basically unknown Obama to represent them years ago. Don't know what has changed as she wasn't good enough then so what's changed?

"Hater"? You know that is new buzz word used to try to intimidate people because no one wants to be "hater". Doesn't work because of overuse just like using "racist" and "bigot" in this election.

We all know what Hillary has to offer us. More of the same. The woman doesn't have an honest bone in her body and people have had that pushed in their faces. She also lacks patriotism and loyalty to our country, with Obama, many of us have had enough of that.

It isn't so much that people "hate" Hillary but that they realize the tragedy that she would be as POTUS. Knowing exactly what to expect.............. Also, as a candidate, she was pushed in the faces of those in the Democratic Party so there is hostility over that also.

Trump? I think his personality rubs some people the wrong way but his thoughts on the issues make it easy to overlook his personality quirks for many people. We are in such bad shape as a country that I think many are saying "Why not?"

I believe that Hillary is most likely the most undesired of the two and that is obvious from the attacks on Trump. Hillary's people know she is less popular than Trump and they desperately need the GOP to nominee a loser like Cruz or Rubio.

So, Clinton is definitely less popular beyond a shadow of a doubt. Just look at the poll numbers. Even Bernie is climbing against Clinton.

I posted a poll here, but this thread can serve as a discussion of the reasons and any elaboration.

I was perfectly aware of that, and I myself don't like to use that word, but I used it anyway because it a way to make the title short and clear and catches the eye.
